Title: The Boys of ’67 by Andrew Wiest
Category: Nonfiction, History, Vietnam
Review: I absolutely loved this book. It was a book about one specific company called the Charlie Company. It basically takes you through the beginning of training to the end where the members of Charlie Company meet for reunions. You’ll love this book because it is not like a schoolbook. The author took the time to get memoirs from the men of the Charlie Company and put them in so you know what they were thinking. What was really nice, was that he didn’t block the cuss words. I would not recommend this book for a young person. The author really took you through the minds of the men; the happiness at the time and especially the sadness. You learn that the men, especially after their stints in Vietnam, had depression (PTSD) and some didn’t even know about it. It’s a wonderfully written book and I recommend it to anyone who wants a view through the eyes of a Vietnam Vet.
